Jonathan Agnew reflects on an attritional first day of the second test between England and the West Indies at Old Trafford.

TMS summarisers Michael Vaughan and Carlos Braithwaite give their reaction to the day’s play and to Jofra Archer’s exclusion from the team after a breach of the bio-secure protocols. We’ll also get reaction from England coach Chris Silverwood.
